last couple of days because it has split apart. half of the players say we don't like that deal. the concern is we thought we were dealing with one group of testers. it is splitting up adding to the absurdity. the other thing is it is actually taking barrels off the market right now. an oil tanker we thought would be filled and in the ocean is not going to be there. adam: phil flynn, thank you very much. lori: iran walking away with leaders as yo u.n. secretary of state john kerry urges patience. now is not the time to sit idle with iran. the public encounters when chairman of the house committee of foreign affairs was just wrapped up a hearing moments ago. appreciate you being with us.

1:07 pm
lori: you believe the president is setting it up. that is problematic. >> yes, the french called it a fool's game. the problem is if we have an agreement where we lift sanctions and they continue to enrich, the end result is they will have more capability. what we should be doing is saying our demand is they stop their enrichment. they shut down their program. that is the logic of six separate u.n. security resolutions demanding that they do that. that should be the u.s. edition. we should increase sanctions until they make that choice to compromise on their nuclear weapons program or until they have the collapse that would alter its the economy of the sanctions. lori:'s reaction that the position on iran has been
1:08 pm
weekend due to the way the u.s. handles syria, the debacle. >> if we had handled things differently, we would be in a stronger position. also if we take the legislation i authored that passed out of the house with 400 votes putting in total sanctions on the economy, that bill right now is in the senate. if we pass that on to the president's desk, we would truly be back in a very, very strong position. i think it is the seal for the deal. he is anxious to cut a deal with iran. to get there you have to be a harder negotiator, he had to give them a tougher choice. that choice has to be looked, you think 600 billion capital flight out of your economy is bad? lori: what is the next step? where do we go from here?

1:10 pm
how do they avoid filing for chapter 9? there have been in trouble since 1992. >> that is very simple. the questions of the state will step in and help them the way except in with harrisburg or if the creditors will say we realize this is an absolute impossible situation and they renegotiate or extend at some point, right? adam: this could be any city. essentially the receiver in scranton. the economy league overseeing their finances has told the city you have to raise taxes. they said to the politicians you better raise taxes. it is a dying economy. and the creditors have not filed an audit report as of yet. why would a creditors say to scranton here is more money? >> not necessarily more money, but here is more time.

ashley: your cellphone's microphone tattooed on your neck. google has a patent for it. that and more on this cannot miss our of markets now. tracy: we should have our id tattoo to our foreheads. we have breaking news right now, peter barnes on the federal budget. >> the budget deficit fell to $92 billion, to $120 billion deficit. the government posted in october. this is the first month for fiscal 2014 and this report continues to pattern of shrinking deficits because of tax increases at the beginning of the year and sequester spending cuts that cut government spending this year. the treasury department does not comment on how the 16 day government shutdown may have affected deficit numbers but we
2:01 pm
should note government outlays were down $14 billion in october. this report came today after the house senate budget conference committee met for the second time this morning to hammer out a budget deal for the rest of fiscal 2014. the congressional budget office projects the deficit will drop below $600 billion for fiscal 2014 after coming in at $680 billion for fiscal 2014 that ended september 30th and if congress and the white house want the deficit to shrink faster cbo released its list of options to cut the deficit. is an exercise that provide fuel for partisan battles over spending and taxes but sometimes offered proposals that do make it into law. the list offers 100 proposals that killed trillions in savings in coming years. ending the end -- the human space program would save $70 billion over ten years. eliminating deduction for state
2:02 pm
and local taxes would save $1 trillion over ten years and raising excise taxes on alcoholic beverages for the first time since 1991 would raise $64 billion over ten years. we will see if congress toast's any of those proposals. tracy: could they pick three more controversial things? thank you very much. get back to the markets. nicole petallides on the floor of the stock exchange. the s&p hit a record high. nicole: exciting for the bulls out there who didn't know whether there was more room to the upside. there was. we have a record all time high day on wall street for the s&p 500 trading 1776 and change at its highest point, point off of that level. we will see if it closes above 1771 to have a closing high. the dow and nasdaq with up
2:03 pm
arrows, they did not record intraday highs and you are seeing up arrows, the dow is up 18 points. home depot, united healthcare and travelers, you are seeing retail index, banking index with up arrows, that shows you the tide has turned earlier today, weaker sentiment particularly out of china and now you are starting to see a lot of green arrows. ashley: here is a story lot of people are talking about. 1-third of adults, thirty-three% of americans are at risk and should consider using less than drug to manage cholesterol. new regulations out from the american college of cardiology and the american heart association could mean big business for companies like pfizer and after zeneca which make those hard drugs. interesting. we are joined by the chief of cardiovascular medicine at the cleveland clinic. thank you so much for joining us. if i am reading this right for many years the goal was to lower
2:04 pm
the bad cholesterol below that 100 level. how does that change with these new guidelines? >> these new guidelines are not so much about the numbers as identifying people who are at risk and giving them a standing drug. these drugs lower the bad cholesterol but they work the most effectively in people with elevated risk of developing heart disease so guidelines target risk rather than numbers. tracy: you are talking about knee. it is hereditary in my family. i have high cholesterol. i think i eat good but i try. to put me on medication now, i am not a child by any stretch but too young to be on medication for the rest of my life. why wouldn't you encourage people to go the oatmeal route, omega 3, natural ways to get this down? >> first of all, this is not a substitute for a healthy
2:05 pm
lifestyle. of course you should eat well, you should exercise regularly, you should keep your body weight down, she issued not sunoco. there are many people, with genetic cause of high cholesterol, they will need to be treated with the drug and these guidelines tell us who is most likely to benefit and guidelines for physicians about how to prescribe these drugs in a safe and effective fashion. ashley: the pharmaceutical companies, if this means bigger business or could it work the other way and more people are told to adapt their life style rather than take the magic pill? >> no question these guidelines will involved treating more patients withstands. all but one of those are generic. some of the drugs that have been generic for a few years you can't get a three month supply for $20 and a large pharmacy. the drugs are not necessarily
2:06 pm
going to make profits. they are going to reduce people's risk of death, heart attack and stroke. tracy: lots of people that experienced side effects, adverse effects to them. how do you play that side? maybe i am a candidate for this but what about the other side. i risk a lot of other bad stuff too? >> guidelines take that into account. the reason we don't treat everybody and believe me there are physicians who have advocated treating everybody over 45 with the cholesterol lowering drug. i don't agree with that. it is about maximizing benefits and minimizing risk and the guidelines identify people in whom the benefits outweigh the risks. there are some side effects for these drugs, they are relatively modest and affect a minority of patients but they have to be taken into account. ashley: it is called a tectonics shift the way doctors look and treat cholesterol. would you agree with that?
2:07 pm
is that a shift in the way we look at this cholesterol and how to lower it? >> it is a tectonics shift, a huge change. for 20 years we said no your numbers and treat the numbers as the goal. that is gone. now it is about treating people at risk, not necessarily because their numbers are high. that will be a big change for the public and for primary care physicians. ashley: chief of cardiovascular, thank you for joining us. interesting stuff. i am on stands by the way. mom and dad inherited it. tracy: maybe online at the pharmacy. concierge medicine for the middle-class. we have the assistant ahead to treat as. would you pay a fee to have the doctor on call? our interview your response coming up. ashley: as washington founded scapegoat for the obamacare

2:32 pm
website and those issues and that was the focus of the hearing today and the second is whether or not the president was telling the truth that you could keep your health insurance plan if you liked it, cancellation notices and acknowledgements from the administration show that is not the whole truth sell there are bills sponsored by republicans allowing insurance companies to offer those plans, we issue those bare bones plans that have been phased out and number of democrats in the senate feeling the political pressure. senator mary landrieu of louisiana, jeff berkeley and dianne feinstein supporting an effort to allow insurance companies to reissue those plans. the problem is the insurance industry and analysts say it took quite some time to give those plans phased out. it will take months to phase them back in. quite a gap and plenty of confusion when it comes to issuing insurance. tracy: thank you very much. ashley: the state of washington awarded belling the biggest

corporate tax rate in history, the $9 billion deal is meant to get boeing to build the 777 object in the evergreen state's but the question is are these tax breaks to his blue big business a good idea for the states themselves? both sides of this debate. an economist at the tax foundation, and florida secretary of commerce and enterprise florida ceo. thank you for being here. you say these tax incentives, they may seem impressive, ultimately don't produce the long-term benefits states hope they will provide? >> they don't. the problem with tax incentives, all in different companies. the new company arrives and gets a lower effective rate while longstanding job creator faces a higher rate and the revenue shortfall, so states raise rates on everyone to fill the gap which is not good for the

2:35 pm
cases like office depot at the end of the day we will do what is right from a fiduciary responsibility returns to the taxpayer. and tax incentives, there a good deal better. ashley: is there a shortfall that is created by doing this? does it mean to taxes will go up elsewhere? >> first of all they are not taxes created in your budget so it is not a shortfall in your budget so if you look at the case of the state of florida corporate income tax is 8.5% of the total budget. have trying to phase of corporate income-tax and 75% of the business and not pay corporate income tax. and what you are trying to phase out there is no revenue lost to the state.
2:36 pm
ashley: 47 states in this country created for creating jobs, if you don't do it obviously you will lose out of these other state so while you say benefits may be short-lived never the less you know the state next door could well take a company that is looking your state and move it into their state. how do you combat that? >> florida is a great example of this. florida has no income tax, has low system all-around and notably florida's tax incentive program, paula quite small compared to other states of its size. washington state gave five times as many tax incentives but over the last five years as florida did and florida's job record is pretty strong. gets lots of tax incentives, one of the few states that is possibly going to slip back into recession. i don't think there is evidence these tax incentives lead to
2:37 pm
economic strength. and calls for higher taxes. ashley: very quickly, has the florida approach to attracting business peer out with regard to these tax breaks? >> absolutely. rick scott has taken office all those 370,000 new private-sector jobs in the state, the and employment rate is september of 2008. look at a budget surplus, talking about doing another $500 million in tax cuts next year and maintaining at aaa bond rating, great place to do business and enjoy the climate here. ashley: no one gets taxed on the sunshine. appreciate it. throw in some sunshine and a nice beach. tracy: can't beat that in florida but everywhere else the incentives -- ashley: don't want to give away the farm. ashley: who will go for this?

tracy: concierge medicine, many of these physicians are teetering in the middle class. would you pay a fee to have a doctor on call? returning to the forefront, the founder, can you explain to everyone what concierge medicine is? >> thank you for having me. concierge in medicine is a field that started in the 1990s-2,000s whereby consumers would pay a physician a monthly membership fee in return for medical services and other amenities like house calls and cellphone
2:43 pm
access. however, that has spilled into a new field called direct primary care where fees are much lower and doctor basic primary-care medical services reducing health-care costs all-around. ashley: you said the traditional method of health delivery is not how you want to practice medicine anymore. what do you mean by that? >> the current model is unsustainable not just for us as physicians but society in america in general. when you reimburse physicians per visit and rewards physicians for procedures many of those procedures become a necessary and the cost goes up. as a society now we are conditioned to thinking about health insurance as necessary while primary care as well as catastrophic event. some insurance was never designed for. insurance was designed for risk-management, rare and expensive events.
2:44 pm
we practice primary care medicine directly with consumers and companies and save the insurance for the catastrophes. tracy: i get that completely but how does this work with current obamacare the we have to implement? you are not part of the exchange by any stretch. >> we are thinking of becoming part of the exchange. we are in the affordable care act. there is an amendment inserted by the industry that allows direct primary care medical homes when combined with catastrophic wraparound insurance to not only be on the exchanges to be in compliance for the folks signing up for the entire package. that entire bundle ends up cutting down health-care costs by quite a bit because if you think of medical care as of ruler, a 12 inch ruler, we are in primary care about 9 inches of the first part of the ruler and we fracture away the three at the end we reserve for catastrophic needs that can be
2:45 pm
used with insurance. if we take care of that ball ourselves at lower affordable cost for patients and companies that sign up with the cost of health care goes down across the board so that is in compliance with the affordable care act. that being said we were created before the affordable care act. ashley: how much will this cost? how much cheaper than a health-insurance plan? >> great question. if you pay for insurance you're paying for 12 inches of that ruler for health care which includes the first nine inches in may not need insurance for, socinus inventions and preventive and prescription refills, you don't need insurance if you can find quality physicians who can give you that. tracy: is there a flat annual fee and how much is it? >> we charge $69 a month and
2:46 pm
that covers -- tracy: that is good. ashley: very affordable. >> companies are signing up around the country, major hospital systems are coming, insurance companies can adopt this model because if we provide high impact preventive care and primary care of rented reduces cost and hospitals. tracy: that is good news. everyone go online and check it out. thank you so much. possible to do it cheap. ashley: absolutely, interesting. it is a quarter till the hour. time for a look at stocks. let's head to the stock exchange where mark newman joins us, staying above the water mark. not a lot moving the market. what is your take? >> it is one group investors are focusing on because that has had a big move, we are approaching
